As almost everyone knows, I save everything…and that includes trim and ribbon scraps. In the basement lurks a bin holding random scraps of yarns, ribbons, and trims just waiting for the day when they might come in useful. And yesterday was that day.
I used random scraps of leftover vintage lace and ribbon I bought like last year at a thrift store and made three bows which I attached to the top of her shirt. Simple, easy and it gave me a chance to use up a few of my vintage scraps.
After I was finished I picked out a few ribbon scraps as well. They weren’t thrifted or vintage but worked perfectly to fancy up one of her plain black T’s. (Gracie is hoping to be able to wear this one to Disneyland.)
These ribbon scraps gave me an idea for another shirt project and skirt to match…smaller bows…more of them….different placement…..I like the idea but am still working on it…this one may take awhile. Until then Grace can wear these and the other one I made her.
PS—The other one I made her is my favorite—it involves iron ons, applique, and breakfast foods. We love it but won’t be sharing it until next week.
PPS—Remember that whole thing about my husband jumping on the band wagon? Well, he’s still enjoying the DIY ride and my house is still wrecked. I’m praying his massive project of doom is finished quickly or I am going to be using the rest of my vintage trims to weave myself a new place to live out in the backyard.
